Holy Cross Orthodox Church
The Self Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America



Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven

“Ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is;
and walk in it, and find peace for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16

 The Orthodox Church is Evangelical but not Protestant,

We are Orthodox but not Jewish,

We are Catholic but not Roman.

We are not non-denominational but pre-denominational.

We are the First Church. We are the native Christians of the Holy Land. We have believed, preserved, proclaimed, defended and laid down our lives for the Faith of the Apostles since the day of Pentecost.


The Body of Christ sharing the Love of Christ


Holy Cross is an Orthodox mission church. We are committed to placing Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior first in our daily lives. We are firmly rooted in the teaching of Holy Scripture and the unchanging Christian witness of the Early Church. We invite all to find their spiritual home here at Holy Cross. Join us for worship this Sunday!

What does it mean to be a real person?

We all need love. We all need each other.

Are you a Bee or a Fly?

Be the Bee!

Bees are attracted to things that are sweet, pure and good.

Flies are attracted to foul, rotten, things and death.
